11/22/63 by Stephen King

It’s not every day you find yourself standing at the entrance to a time tunnel; but, that is exactly where Jake Epping finds himself. On the precipice of an adventure that will take him back to the very heart and soul of the early 1960s America.

When Jake is offered the opportunity to go back in time and change the past, he finds himself on a collision course with one of history’s most infamous assassins, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Unprepared for the consequences of manipulating events, things go from bad to worse as events start to divert from their predetermined path.Jake quickly learns that changing things in the past is not as easy as first thought since time itself has a way of pushing back.

Helped by the beautiful librarian, Sadi Dunhill, Jake finds himself caught on a one-way track to a future he could never have imagined.11/22/63 has a way of pulling you into its grip right from the first few pages. Stephen King, once again, works his magic in a way few writers can match.

What sets this book apart from other similar time-traveling stories is just how incredibly visual 1960s America becomes in the reader’s mind. From the taste of Root beer to the smell of the old mill, it’s the finer details of the story that tend to pull you.

The characters are all well developed, over the course of the story. This was one of only 2 books that actually made me cry as I closed the cover on the final page. The journey had such magic about it that I often found myself wanting to pause if only to extend the experience for a little longer.

I highly recommend this story to anyone who’s ever thought about going back and changing history.
